Wits’ Eredivisie Defender Not Yet Registered

With most PSL clubs already beginning to look to finalize their squads ahead of the close of the August transfer window in a few weeks time, word reaching the Siya crew is that former Dutch Eredivisie defender, Kwees Kwakman, is yet to be registered with Wits.

The central defender signed a one-year deal with the Clever Boys at the start of the campaign, however it is believed work permit issues are delaying his registration. 

South African Home Affairs have made changes to their policy of how foreigners must apply for a permit, and this seems to have caused a delay in the Dutchman’s registration.

New visa regulations are such that the player has to go back to his homeland to apply for a permit, and as such added delays are thought to be expected.

The defender’s absence could be a loss for Wits as he boasts some top class experience from his time playing in both Holland’s Premier League, as well as the German Bundesliga.

In addition, Gavin Hunt bemoaned some poor defending during his side’s recent 1-1 draw with Polokwane City in the league. It’s thought that a proven performer like Kwakman could help Wits significantly in the defensive third.

As it stands, the Students have registered 29 players with the club’s three foreign spots taken by Chris Katongo (Zambia), Getaneh Kebede (Ethiopia) and Giorgi Nergadze (Georgia).
